Gurren Lagann is the best thing ever. It's completely redefined the way I view the role of technology in my life because in it the expression of human intent as it applies to machine is taken to its logical conclusion. Simply speaking, as the applications for technology become more unlimited and its interfaces become more intuitive our relationship to our tools undergoes a basic change. In essence our instrumentality is evolving: from objects which redirect or amplify energy into objects that allow us to express our desires directly.
